Access to Insurance Doesn’t Guarantee Access to Care

Many are still unhappy with Obamacare.The main intent of the Affordable Care Act was to expand the safety net (Medicaid), regulate the non-employer-based private insurance market (the insurance exchanges) and help people buy that insurance (subsidies) in order to reduce the number of Americans who are uninsured. On those metrics, it appears to be succeeding.

First and foremost, Obamacare was about improving access to health care. While it did improve access to insurance, in many, many other ways the United States is falling short. Things are likely to get worse before they get better. That’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.

Hong Kong’s world-class health care system plagued by shortage of doctors

Subscribe to our YouTube channel for free here: https://sc.mp/subscribe-youtube

Hong Kong has one of the world’s top-ranked medical services, providing the city’s 7.4 million people with care that has a good reputation for availability, affordability and quality.

But the universal, low-cost public health care system has a downside – including long waiting times and relatively less comfort and privacy than private-sector patients get.

The public system also faces a shortage of practitioners, a serious issue the city will increasingly have to grapple with as its population continues to grow and age.

Pressure on the public system has already started pushing patients – those who can afford it – to the private-sector medical care in Hong Kong is second-most expensive in the world, after the United States.

Weight Bias in Health Care

Overweight and obese patients frequently feel stigmatized in health care settings, and face stereotypes and prejudice from health care providers.
These stigmatizing experiences (also called ‘weight bias’) jeopardize patients’ emotional and physical health. The Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University (www.yaleruddcenter.org) has released this new video in response to a growing concern about weight bias in health care. The video, hosted by celebrity and activist Emme and featuring Rudd Center experts including Dr. Rebecca Puhl and Dr. Kelly Brownell, uses expert commentary and dramatic representation to increase awareness of bias and stigma that overweight and obese patients encounter in health care. Equally importantly, the video presents a range of practical strategies to help providers reduce bias in their clinical practice, and to optimize the health care experience for their overweight and obese patients.

Friedman Fundamentals: What Drives High Health Care Costs

The fundamental reason for high health care expenses is third-party payments. Most payments to physicians are made not by the patient but by a third-party — an insurance company or governmental body. By eliminating most third-party payments and restoring the role of insurance to protecting against major medical catastrophes, health care cost and spending can be reduced.
